First of all, I’m writing in english because I don’t want to limit my options and I would really like to find someone that knows at least a little english or is intelligent enough to use Google Translate and understand what I’m writing. I travel full time and knowing english is a big plus.
I’ve been to more than 40 countries. I’ve traveled with family, with friends, with my ex girlfriend, but most of my travels I’m by my own. It’s been amazing, I learnt a lot, I´ve met very interesting people but now it’s time to “settle down”. I want to continue traveling but I would love to have someone to share my experiencies with.
More than a travel partner I’m looking for a life partner.
Someone to share life with. Share my thoughts, my feelings, share everything. Not only my travels. That’s what life is about, right?
Sharing time (the most precious thing we have) with people you love.
I’m not an easy guy, most of the people call me crazy because I gave up a promising career for an “unstable” nomad life. Like if being stable would be dictated by a job or where you are. Anyways, I value my time more than anything so I don’t want to waste it.
There’s plenty of fish in the sea, but I do really know what I’m looking for. So I decided to make it public. Maybe it helps, maybe it doesn’t, but I’m sure it will help me organize and prioritize what I want.
So, I’m looking for someone who:
- Loves to travel
It’s a dealbreaker, if you don’t like to travel, please do not keep reading, don’t waste your time. It’s my passion and I’m going to travel all my life. I may change the way I travel but I’ll keep traveling, I’ll keep moving.
- Is very flexible/adaptable
Someone who could sit in the table with Queen Elizabeth in Buckingham Palace and enjoy the experience but could also grab a snack in a streetfood market in Bangkok and eat it while walking through lots of people. Who won’t complain if a flight is delayed or changed. Someone who would be comfortable living in different continents and would be able to take the best out of each place.
- Is intelligent, curious and loves to learn new things
Conversation is very important for me. You can have the best physical chemistry in the world, but for a real relationship to work out you need to have conversational chemistry. You need to have similar interests. Similar levels of curiosity, and intelligences that match. I cannot stand wasting my time talking to someone who cannot go into deep topics or avoids debating about important things. I hate small talk and superficial conversations. I want brains. Nowadays they call it sapiosexual.
- Is independent and has entrepreneurial tendencies
I’m not looking for a startup co-founder or something similar. Don’t need a serial entrepreneur. I just want someone who’s independent in every aspect of life. Whose opinion is not influenced by someone else’s, and more than anything whose actions are not influenced by someone else, or at least not that much. Ideally, it would be someone who can work remotely from anywhere in the world. If it’s her own project/business, better.
- Is a daydreamer / an idealist, but practical
I love people that daydream and have clear goals an a purpose in life. I don’t have time for complainers. You need to be practical. You can’t be up in the clouds the whole day, you have to take action. That’s the only way, at least the only way I know, you can actually change things.
- Is sociable and friendly
I’m not the most sociable person in the world. In fact, believe it or not, I’m an introvert. But traveling puts you in front of thousands of different people and there’s nothing more valuable than those interactions with the people you meet on the road. Traveling is not about the places you visit but the people you share moments with.
- Is a generous person
If you’re not making someone else’s life better, then you’re wasting your time. I mean, really, it’s not just a nice quote. It’s the truth. Helping can take many forms. If you’re reading this you’re probably in the top 5% of the world population in terms of pretty much any social stat you want to measure. So realizing that and give back to the people that had less opportunities in life is something I really care about.
- Likes sports
I’m not looking for a sports freak. And of course I’m talking about doing sports and not watching them on tv. I would like to be with a girl that takes care of her health and is active. Traveling implies moving a lot, I don’t want to be dragging someone around the globe.
And then there are some things that may sound like details to some people, but they are things I don’t negotiate. They are very important things to me. I care a lot about them.
I hate smoking. There’s no point. There’s no benefit in smoking. No one that matches the previous list should smoke, it’s not a smart thing to do.
I don’t usually drink. Maybe a glass of wine if I’m having a nice dinner or a fancy cocktail at a party. I’m not expecting the same. You can drink and it’s fine. What I don’t like is people that get wasted all the time. I just don’t get people that go out with the only purpose of getting wasted. And the people that need to get wasted to talk to someone, it’s so stupid. But I’ll leave that for another day. You can get drunk every once in a while, but don’t be an alcoholic. If you are one, don’t even try. Save my (and your) time, please.
I’m a guy that thinks that if you’re in a serious relationship (and that’s what I’m looking for) you end up being part of another family. And family is the most important thing for me. I understand that we are going to build a new family, but we’re going to be part of a bigger family. It’s crucial that you have a nice family. I’m not going to ask for a united loving family because I understand is a very rare thing nowadays. But at least good people. I know you didn’t choose it but I still really care about the people you grew up with and made you who you are today.
- International exchange experience
I was not sure to write this or not but I finally decided to include it because having lived abroad gives you a different way to look at the world. People that have had an exchange experiences or that have lived in another country or that come from a multicultural family (even better) are way more open to new things and understanding and accepting the differences between people. And it’s a huge thing. The world would be very different if people would travel more.
It’s funny that this ended up looking like a job offer, but it was my way to keep things clear for myself.
Lo que no sabías de Tinder (knowing Spanish would be nice)
Many people told me this was a stupid thing to do, and I kind of agree with them. But I don’t care, it helped me organizing my thoughts.
My friends tell me the only way to meet someone like this is by traveling more and, you know, maybe is true, or maybe not, or maybe I’ve already met her. Lots of maybes, but really, who knows?
